The Richard Starkings series from Image Comics, Elephantmen, ended in December 2017. But he did also tell us that they would return in some form. And, we both got a ComiXology Originals mini-series earlier in the year and for December 2018, a Christmas Special. Although, because they’re Americans, they call it a Holiday Special. Too many holidays, that’s their trouble.
Anyway, that means on December 12th, 2018, ComiXology Originals releases Elephantmen 2261: Holiday Special, as a digital-exclusive publication, the first Elephantmen holiday issue by the longtime creative team of writer/letterer Richard Starkings, artist/colorist Axel Medellin, cover by Boo Cook, and a holiday backup story by Richard Starkings and Superfreaks artist Margaux Saltel.
Hip Flask’s fellow Information Agent, Vanity Case, lost her father when she was just a child… and Hip’s friends Savannah, Hunter and Jet lost their grandfather just over a year ago. InElephantmen 2261: Holiday Special, Hip decides it is his job to cheer them up for the holidays…
But that’s not all. This stand-alone one-shot includes a special holiday short story outside of the Elephantmen universe written by Richard Starkings with art by Margaux Saltel (Superfreaks) titled, MARZIPAN! about a little alien who meets a little girl. Girl falls in love with little alien. Alien falls in love with Marzipan. Little girl loses little alien!
Elephantmen are human/animal hybrids designed to fight a war. But the war is over, and now they live among us. Debuting nearly 15 years and 80 issues ago from Image Comics, comiXology recently released the 5-issue who dunnit miniseries Elephantmen 2261: The Death of Shorty as part of the comiXology Originals line of exclusive digital content.
Both Elephantmen 2261: The Death of Shorty #1-5 and Elephantmen 2261: Holiday Special are included in Prime Reading, Kindle Unlimited and comiXology Unlimited at no additional cost and available for purchase only on comiXology and Kindle. Oh and are currently on sale as well…
